This looks lovely!! You did a fantastic job! I don't even remember how I found your blog - I've been following for a while now. I think you are doing a great job, and I wouldn't change a thing! :) Thank you for the chance!!


After much thought, I decided to follow Ali Edwards week in the life project. I'm adding my own tweaks here and there. First, I'm only going to focus on the weekdays M-F. I may change my mind.... second, I'm keeping it very simple. I plan to only use 4 pictures per day. This may be difficult & third, I'm going to wait til I have all the pictures at the end of the week to put the album together. I think. tehehe
Anyway, I usually get bored with projects if I don't have a good foundation. SO, I decided to put the album together minus the details. Here is my cover:
I designed all the tags on the cover. I'm working with a 8X8" chipboard album. I used some AC pattern paper and rub-on.
I used baseball card holders but cut them down and only have 4 slots.
I made 6 new sets for this album...gotta say, I love them! THEY WILL BE GOING IN THE SHOP as printables very soon! Keep the eyes peeled. ;)

I usually get my photos printed at Costco or CVS and I place 2 small photos on one 4X6" pic, these are perfect for baseball card holders.
Pretty excited about this and I hope to stick with it. I kept it easy for this reason. :)
Anyone else working on one? Please link it up.
***GIVEAWAY**** If you want a chance to win these printables (6 sets in a PDF). Please leave me a comment. tell me how you found this blog, or any suggestions for the blog are welcome. Thanks!!
-Veronica

Love it!! I saw the teaser pic on Twitter and Facebook. Was hoping you'd post more and here you are!! This looks great. Can't wait to see the finished album.

Shirley said...

Nice - looking forward to the completed album! I'm also planning on doing Week in the life, but not necessarily committing to the album piece, probably just the blogging piece that I can later use to scrapbook.

I would love to win some freebie downloads from you! I am a fan of yours on facebook and saw the link you posted. I'm just getting back into paper scrapping (still was a cardmaker, just went digi for scrapping) I have been hooked on making mini albums, so this is right up my alley currently!
